Chromatic Cobbles Blanket -- Design Wars Scheepjes Merino Soft

When the opportunity arose to use Scheepjes Merino Soft* for a Design Wars Challenge, I jumped at the chance! And why is that, you ask?

The COLORS! With 54 colors to choose from in the Merino Soft* line, I was struggling to narrow down my color selection and finally managed to settle on “only” 22. The colors are rich, vibrant, on trend, and make me seriously happy.

See...??

So you might ask if it is really as soft as the name states. Merino Soft* is exactly that—SOFT. It has a delightfully scrumptious hand and fabulous drape.

This yarn is 50% merino wool, 25% microfiber and 25% acrylic. And according to the laundry label it is machine washable which makes it an excellent choice for almost every project. Because it is so gentle on the skin, it is perfect for cowls, scarves, clothing and, yes, blankets!

 

 
Now want to see some brilliance in action?

 

 
Scheepjes Merino Soft yarn with Easy Start tab--brilliance, I tell ya!
That little easy start tab means no digging around in the center of the skein for the end. And it pulled cleanly for me on every skein. Brilliant, I tell ya!

 

Because the yarn is not tightly plied, I thought I might have trouble with splitting. But with my Clover Amour hook I had not a bit of trouble, but would be curious if other hooks had different results.

 

 
So do you want to see what I made with this heavenly yarn?

I'm calling it Chromatic Cobbles Blanket because it reminds me of a VERY colorful cobblestoned street.
 
In typical Felted Button style, I designed a blanket with loads of texture and a chromatic flow of rainbow hues. It can be made to any size you wish, too. Since I only used half of the 50g skeins of each of the colors with exception to the border color--of which I used nearly 3 entire skeins—you could increase the size of the sample blanket by 50% by only ordering extra of the border color.

I’m pretty tickled about the colorplay, texture and uniqueness of this blanket. But I especially like how squishy it is because of the added strips of color. The strips are quick and simple to make and weave. Grab a skein and head out with your hook for some on-the-go crocheting of strips, too.
